There is a weekly live show called PodChatLive for the regular professional growth and learning of Podiatrists and various specialists who might be keen on the foot and associated topics. The show is streamed live on Facebook and then it is edited to enhance the product quality and then transferred to YouTube to reach a bigger viewership. Each stream includes a unique guest or group of guests to talk about a singular topic in each episode. Issues are answered as they are posted on Facebook by the hosts and guests within the stream on Facebook. There's also a audio version of each event found on iTunes as well as Spotify and the other common podcast services that gets submitted after the initial live. The hosts developed a large following that keeps increasing in popularity. PodChatLive can be regarded as a proven way in that podiatry practitioners may get free professional development hours or education credits.
The range of themes is very diverse. In the 2nd stream while the notion of the stream was still being developed, the two hosts were asked a live question which they did not feel competent enough to respond to, therefore for the next edition they had on their first guest that was really the beginning of the PodChatLive format. That first guest was Chris Bishop from Adelaide in Australia who is an authority for the 3D evaluation of gait or the assessment of how that people run or walk using state-of-the-art systems. The episode talked over the main advantages of and disadvantages of these methods for use by podiatrists and the expenses involved in setting up a facility to do a high level 3D analysis of gait. The issue of how much the set up costs in connection to the improvement in clinical outcomes was an important part of that debate. Chris was definitely a valuable guest and allowed the hosts to test the format of having a guest on remotely within a live episode.
